I really miss not having a real trail bike.

It is a Dunlop D803 tubeless radial with Bib Mousse inserts. I've heard great things about them too, in everything but deep gooey mud and wet clay. Just brought it home last night but it hooked up great around and around and around the house!

Rusty looked more than a bit nervous when I pulled up with this one.
Sure hope the 250 doesn't turn into a very expensive donor/parts bike!

Ride On Everybody!

No worries Rider. I need to get my own photo account. BTW, which ones are best/ free?

And yes, I will absolutely give this trials tire a go as I can swap w 250 donor bike depending on conditions etc. (Rusty hates me already as I'm eyeballing her new battery, bendix, map switch and clutch cover guard for immediate repurposing)

i prefer Flickr or picturetrail, mainly use flickr now. Smugmug is very good but its pay to play, i havent ponied up the $ for smug yet.

I LOVE my trials tire in everything but super deep mud. They corner a bit different but work awesome up the creek.

Another thumbs up for the trials. As long as it isn't sliding or spinning, it hooks up great. It also keeps hooking up until almost the end of its life unlike a knobby that falls off as soon as the knobs round off.


95% of the time, it works fantastic. The only times it has got me was on greasy hard pack clay and sloppy mud. And just recently I leaned the bike over a bit too far and ran out of tire.

For me i ran into the most issues on severely off camber sections covered with deep leaves, especially when wet. Well I run into a lot of issues everywhere but this was the most difficult for me and a trials tire.

Cheese and Rice!

Battery charged, good to go.
Rekluse and tire combo....WOW! Two arthritic thumbs up!
Neighbors and front yard/hill.... not so much.

Couple of small leaks....it's a KTM, I give a s#!t less at the moment.

What I need is a full tank of gas and a sitter! Bad! NOW!
Damn my hands are shaking.
Hey, where'd my jug of cool aid go???

Cool aid and Xanax (I wish)

Ok, I've calmed down a bit, so...

If anyone has experience with bib moose...
There's a rim lock on the back tire and a hole for the tube. No rim lock on the front, just 2 holes. Do I need one (for the front) and should I fill the holes? Seems like water would get in and at least hurt/rust rim and nipples if not also degrade the inserts? Or do they need to breeeeeathe?
